Hi Eli,

Dmitry, what happens from here is up to you.  You can decide to accept
Wolfgang's changes as-is, or you can decide you want to continue
discussing this with him (in which case I will stay away of the
discussions) and eventually arrive at some alternative changeset.  Or
you can make any other decision about this.

I think the first thing I'll have to do is revert a part of an earlier patch to vc-default-ignore which changed its semantics a little, because it doesn't look like this discussion is going to culminate in a patch small enough for emacs-27 anyway.

Then, naturally, we'll have to look for small changes that improve the situation but provide as little breakage as possible. I pretty much agree that vc-ignore's semantics are not well thought through (or documented), and there is space for improvement. But the devil is in the details. I do have a few of my own questions/ideas, but I'll leave those until later.

I did arrive at a few conclusions after studying the issues raised in
the discussions, so if you want, I can post those conclusions FTR, if
for nothing else.

Yes, of course, please go ahead.
